Capital Color Ride

Saturday, October 5, 2019

Enjoy an autumn bike ride along the Virginia Capital Trail, starting and ending at Chickahominy Riverfront Park. Celebrate milestones along the route by getting sprayed with food-grade, non-toxic powder dye. The farther you ride, the more colors you get! Being sprayed is optional. Great fun for the whole family!

Pedal your way through the Virginia Capital Trail with color surprises at every turn! Add a little color to your day pedaling round-trip from Chickahominy Riverfront Park to your pit stop of choice. Make tracks riding this beautiful scenic fall trail as a family or at your leisure. Load up your bike, wear your white t-shirt and get colored at “color pit stops” which feature refueling stations of water, healthy snacks and recreational fun.

Multiple riding options available:
  • Purple: The family fun marker (1-mile ride)
  • Green: 2-mile marker (4-mile ride)
  • Blue: 4-mile marker (8-mile ride)
  • Red: 7-mile marker (14-mile ride)
  • Gold: Return to Chickahominy Riverfront Park for the gold finisher color! 
Register your bikes and get bike safety checks by the James City County Police Department. Fee includes refreshments, maps, t-shirt, lunch and colorful fun and biking vendors.
